Excellent Airline Services
These Airblue reviews reveal the airline’s excellent cabin crew, clean interiors, and acceptable dining choices. One of these Airblue reviews concluded that “Overall it was a pleasant journey and it offers good value for money. Recommended but only as a second choice.” There was room for improvement, but since these Airblue reviews were dated a few years ago, I expect this airline had improved their services.
